A man who stabbed the ambulance crew member that was trying to help him has been jailed.

Stephen Pullen, aged 43, from Eaton Road, Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to GBH at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday and was sentenced on the same day to four years’ imprisonment.

On 21 January Pullen stabbed a member of the ambulance staff in the stomach with a screwdriver in Stoke Road, Aylesbury.

The 38-year-old male victim was attending a call out from the offender.

Investigating officer, Det Con Ben Giddings from Force CID in Aylesbury, said: “This was a shocking and unprovoked attack on a member of the emergency services who had come to help Pullen after he had claimed to be suffering from a stroke. Once in the back of the ambulance and without any warning he stabbed the victim with a screwdriver.”

In 2009 Pullen was given four months in prison for breaching an ASBO preventing him using sexually explicit language within earshot of other people.
